Perini Navi is an Italian shipyard based in Viareggio, Italy. Founded in 1983 by Fabio Perini, who pioneered automation and furling systems in large sailing yachts, the yard builds ketchs mainly, many of which have been designed by Ron Holland. Shipbuilding is carried out in Istanbul, most of the outfitting is carried out in Viareggio, whilst maintenance and refitting is carried out nearby in La Spezia, where the Beconcini shipyard and Picchiotti brand were acquired in 2005. Picchiotti's motor yachts are promoted under Briand Brand's brand "Vitruvius".
Perini Navi's largest project to date was the 88m Maltese Falcon for repeat client Tom Perkins. Other owners include Rupert Murdoch, Silvio Berlusconi, Turgay Ciner, Gerhard Andlinger, Larry Ellison, George Economou, Massimo Moratti, Bertram R.C. Rickmers and Kenneth P. Weiss.
